Don't be fooled by the naysayers. Those who say Phoenix doesn't have live music options in the summer are either lying or basing their statements off of the dark days before engineers mastered central air conditioning. There's enough music going on this weekend to keep Bomont barn-dancing for years.
Here's a list of runners-up we could have easily picked for this weekend's recommendations: Dark Time Sunshine/Open Mike Eagle at Club Red, Sugar Thieves at Rhythm Room, Japhy's Descent/Ghetto Cowgirl/The Sundowners/Tiptoe Gloryhole at Yucca Tap Room, Air Traffic Controller at Electric Ballroom, Le Butcherettes at Crescent Ballroom, Tedeschi Trucks Band at Talking Stick Casino.
And there are tons more options in our comprehensive concert listings as well.
